Personal Quotes (2)
[on 'Love is Strange'] I think that all of my previous films were about the nature of love and its destructive toll on an individual. But even more, they were films of self-discovery, about people who were trying to understand who they are and what they felt about that. This is a film that begins with two men who know who they are, and face a conflict together. How they face that conflict is the story of the film and also describes their love. I've always thought of it as an epic story told in a New York apartment because it's multi-generational. It's really about all these generations and how, at each stage of our life, we know such different things.
All history is defined by shifting modes of reality and time and how things change. That's what I love about cinema. It changes in the moment.
